Mental Health Day

Today has been such a nice day so far! This was how we spent some of it.

And, yeah, I won. (Serves Studly right, cuz he knows I HATE this game, and I played it with him anyway because he loves it, and I love HIM!)

I love that game... only if I win!

I'm glad you're having a nice day off, you deserve it with all this madness going on!

GOOD quality time...I don't like that game is TOO long. You are a good mama. :)
ps. I always end up being the iron. Ironic? yes.

Greater love hath no Mama who plays the game of Monopoly with her child!

I don't love my kids enough to play that horrible, horrible game with them. I'll play Candyland before I'll play Monopoly.

You are a good Mama!

I'm not sure what makes you more saintly: teaching in a school where neighborhood shootings are so common that they only irritate you, or playing Monopoly! I LOATHE that game, too.

Glad you and the Stud Muffin had such a nice day together.

Monopoly is the best game ever! Especially if you have HOURS to really relax and do it right. :-)

In my neck of the woods (as far east as you can go) we don't have gang activity,but we have poverty, domestic violence, and drug issues, so. whatever it is that makes our job challenging in and out of the classroom, it's the kids that make it worthwhile...even when we're in need of a mental health. Good job taking the time to look after yourself.

As for the typos...I hate them!

I meant mental health day! (Maybe I need one too!)

You're a good Mommy.
My kids will con me into playing the Game of Life from time to time. I used to LOVE it as a kid, but as an adult, it's downright TEDIOUS....!

Do you have the version with the electronic calculator? It goes much faster, but you don't "get" to do as much math. =) Can you tell it's not my fave game, either?
